This paper aimed to estimate the magnitude of school segregation in Colombia and its departments, both in primary and lower secondary education. An analysis of the 2016 Saber census tests for 5th and 9th grade students was made. The sample was made up of 1,138,885 students, enrolled in 24,401 schools. Results indicated that the magnitude of school segregation was high, both for primary and secondary levels, with a trend towards greater segregation in groups with a higher socioeconomic level, as well as significant differences between departments.
